While I Breathe, I Hope. Many of you may not recognize the South Carolina motto, but I believe you will understand its message immediately. I originally wrote a blog on Hope in December 2015, and I feel it's still very relevant today. I've often thought that a person can endure almost anything, as long as they know there is hope -- hope for a different tomorrow, to be healed, for a loved one to return, whatever circumstances apply. Without hope, it can be hard to find the strength to carry one's burdens. Martin Luther (1483 - 1546) said, "Everything that is done in the world is done by hope." I quote Martin Luther with reticence due to his reputation of anti-Judaism and antisemitism -- but I do so because I believe the message of hope is strong and transcends these beliefs, and indeed transcends all beliefs -- it is a universal message. Someone erected the artwork in the photo on the beach at Hunting Island, and when I saw it I thought of the state motto. So on our journey, we learn to hope, and to provide hope to others, as it is a critical component in our survival. As always, I invite your comments on this.
According to Merriam-Webster.

Hi all! We're going to launch this new style before Christmas. Great gift for both the ladies and the gents. Would love to have your feedback!
historic st. philips church cemetery contains signers of both the declaration and constitution. Where else could you find this?
I came across Mark Jones' blog by accident but suggest you check it out if you are interested in Charleston history or history in general. The answer to the question is -- there are 5 graveyards that contain both signers, one of course is St. Philips in downtown Charleston. At St. Philips cemetery you will find Edward Rutledge who signed the Declaration and was the youngest signer, and Charles Pinckney who signed the Constitution and was the 2nd youngest signer. Check out the blog to get the details about the other 4 locations and signers -- the link is below. There is one cemetery that has 2 signers of both documents. Let us know if you were surprised by the answer!

While American Indians had long inhabited the Charleston area, the first immigrants arrived in 1670. Settlers from England sailed up the Ashley River, stopping at Albemarle Point, but just a few years later moved back down the river to White Point Garden, which sits along Charleston's High Battery and was easier to defend against their French, Spanish and Indian enemies.
This beautiful spot was also the place where one of Charleston’s most infamous characters was hanged. While Charleston was a beautiful and popular spot during early 1700s, it was also home to a number of pirates. In 1718, alone, nearly 50 pirates were hanged in Charleston. While Blackbeard, who arrived in Charleston harbor that same year taking ships and hostages for ransom may be the best known, it was Stede Bonnet, known as the Gentleman Pirate, who met his fate in the gallows at White Point Garden. Bonnet, who came from a good family and who had become a major in the Barbados army, was captured after a fierce battle with Colonel William Rhett.
The spirit of pirates and a rogue individualist style comes forth in this design.
